Rock hopping at Rylstone

Ok so it's not rock hopping in the kayaking sense, but the boulders which line the edge of Barden Moor above Cracoe do provide a perfect evening's entertainment, hopping from one boulder to the next, with all manner of problems to be solved...
...from rounded slabs and flared cracks to steeper and often easier choices.
The call of the curlews that breed here remind me of Shetland and often, on an evening such as this, it is enough just to sit, absorbing the scene, reminiscing about rock hopping in the far north.
